How to read from text file?

Recommended Posts

akfourtyseven

I want to copy files using my autoit script, I don't want to specify the destination path within the script but I want the script to read destination paths from plain text document. For example, C:\test.txt

The text file may contain;

c:\program files

d:\test

e:\help

How can I make it copy a file to these destination paths?

Thanx in advance!

akfourtyseven,

Firstly, welcome to the forums. You will find lots of help here, but do not expect us to write your scripts for you ;-)

So now you will not be surprised if I start by telling you to read about the following functions in the help file:

_FileReadToArray, FileCopy, For...To...Step...Next.

Try and produce something yourself first and then come back and ask questions if you have problems. There are a couple of very good tutorials if you want to learn more about AutoIt - you can find them here and here.

Hey...

How about the FileReadLine Function?

like this (from AutoIT Help)

$file = FileOpen("c:\file.txt", 0)

; Check if file opened for reading OK

If $file = -1 Then

MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")

Exit

EndIf

; Read in lines of text until the EOF is reached

While 1

$line = FileReadLine($file)

If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop

MsgBox(0, "Line read:", $line)

Wend

FileClose($file)

:)
